ASX-listed Kasbah Resources Limited has increased the JORC compliant, Indicated Mineral Resource for the Western Zone (WZ) target at its Achmmach Tin Project to [email protected] 1.25% Sn, equivalent to 4.2kt of contained tin.
The significant update represents a 53.8% increase in the indicated tonnage, a 31.5% increase in grade and double the total contained tin. It was made following results of a thirty-five hole, extensional drilling program at the target, which lies along the strike of the Sidi Addi Trend, on the western edge of the El Hajeb province in Northern Morocco.
Kasbah Managing Director Wayne Bramwell said: “An Indicated Resource Grade of 1.25% Sn is a fantastic result. Grade will always be king and the higher metallurgical recoveries achieved from Kasbah‘s testwork makes the WZ an increasingly valuable early extraction target”
Whilst the WZ mineralisation is considered suitable for extraction via open pit mining, an underground operation is considered more viable economically due to the geometry of the deposit. Kasbah is working to integrate any potential operation at the WZ into the base case DFS for the Meknes Trend, which hosts the majority of the total Indicated and Measured Resource at Achmmach, at 119kt of contained tin.
